Movie News: NSFW 'The Heat' Trailer, 'The Last of Robin Hood,' Another for Ron Howard, and More

Jan 24, 2013

Movie 43

If I Stay: Chloe Moretz (this week's Movie 43 and the upcoming Carrie and Kick-Ass 2) is attached to star in If I Stay, described as a “supernatural music” picture. She will play a classical musician with a boyfriend in the indie rock world. Documentary filmmaker R.J. Cutler (The September Issue) is in talks to make his feature directorial debut; he’s been working on the music-themed TV show Nashville. [Variety]

The Last of Robin Hood: Despite the title, The Last of Robin Hood has little to do with Sherwood Forest and much to do with Errol Flynn, the legendarily flamboyant movie star who spent the last two years of his life romantically involved with a teenage girl. Kevin Kline, 65, is set to play Flynn (who died at the age of 50), and now it appears that Dakota Fanning, soon to turn 19, will play opposite him in the period drama. [Collider]

In the Heart of the Sea: Director Ron Howard has suddenly become very popular. Just yesterday we reported that he was set to develop a new script for Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book, and now we hear he’s “circling” In the Heart of the Sea, based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s absorbing account of a maritime disaster that reportedly inspired Moby Dick. Chris Hemsworth is attached to star; he and Howard worked together on the upcoming Formula 1 racing picture Rush, which is due out in September. [Vulture]

The Heat Trailer: Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy will play a tight-ass FBI agent and a badass Boston cop, respectively, in the upcoming comedy The Heat. Those character descriptions, by the way, are from the new international trailer, which indicates an R rating will be in order when the movie hits theaters on March 5. Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) directs. [The Playlist]
